Although this film was another victim of the 1952 Republic edited-for-television mutilation, with more than 20 minutes removed, the complete Trucolor version has survived and been restored. It was telecast Wednesday 13 July 2016 on Turner Classic Movies. See more »
First-rate matinée fare with Roy in fine early form. Republic popped for more than usual with a load of extras and TruColor. Then too, the storyline's almost contemporary with Roy and guys trying to save wildlife from greedy poachers. Of course, this means flying fists, fast guns, and hard riding. Plus a gang headed by a pretty girl (Bachelor), instead of the usual mustachioed slickster. Wow! And most challenging of all, Roy's got to survive being trapped in a frozen meat locker, of all things. Good thing hefty Andy Devine's along providing more than comedy relief. I guess Dale was busy elsewhere, so nifty little Jane Frazee gets to supply the romance, while the Sons of the Pioneers get to croon a few tunes along with our hero. I guess my only minus is the locations. Too bad Republic didn't pop for more scenic surroundings than scrubby greater LA. But that's okay since there's more than enough to keep this Front Row geezer happy, and hopefully you too.
